One thing I love about photography is never really knowing what I will get when I head out for a shoot. Not only does this force me to be flexible, it requires me to think on my feet. With newborns you can increase that uncertainty because there isn’t any convincing them to pose just right or stop crying while you get a couple more shots.
Meet Vivian! She is one beautiful baby and she likes to sleep… that is until there is a camera nearby. Our first session resulted in the first three shots below, then she was a bit too unsettled to get much more. We scrapped shooting any more that day and decided to try again later. Take two was at their home and I am pretty grateful that she didn’t cooperate fully the first time because, just look at all of the special moments we might have otherwise missed!
